The Montreal podcast that would easily collect an entire deck of cards in Alice in Borderland Season 2 is back with another podcast for your ears.

I’ve always had a soft spot for some deathmatch based fiction. From Running Man to Battle Royale to Death Race 2000 (to name some of my favorites). There is something immediately gripping about watching contestants face off to the death. There’s something even more compelling when the game is not just about killing your opponent but about besting them in some other game of skill or wits but someone’s life is still on the line.

Dark? Sure, but boy will it glue me to the television set.

The collective zeitgeist also apparently agrees, considering the megahit that was Squid Game.

I may be in the minority here, but I prefer the two seasons of Alice in Borderland over Squid Game. Of course Squid Game has a lot more to say about class division and the wealth gap but Alice in Borderland has cool anime style characters being cool. Somehow the challenges of Alice in Borderland (and the fact that there is no clear end game/reward for clearing the games) pulled me in. It’s a lot less bleak in that sense. They’re just stuck in there playing these games.

Speaking of games, how about that Dungeons & Dragons, eh? Boy, Hasbro must be excited that a new trailer for the movie dropped to push down all those news articles about them mucking about with their Open Game License. Hell hath no fury like a bunch of angry nerds scorned.

Let’s quickly go through the list of times a mega-corporation has meddled with something beloved and made it better.

Moving on.

There’s still plenty of time to let us know what movies you want to see get re-ranked on The List so please let us know your picks using this handy little survey. Since we’re too cheap to buy the premium survey features we are making due with what we’ve got so that means you have to pick at least 1 movie from each question, and at most 5 from each. So you need to pick 2 to 10 movies we should consider re-ranking. Use the comment boxes to explain yourself.


If this survey is too clunky for you, just find Scott and message him your picks.

Meanwhile over on Garbage Time, we spend most of the episode talking about Marvel Snap. Seriously, why isn’t Jon playing Marvel Snap yet? We also talk about tires and lightbulbs so you know it’s a good one.


If all that sounds like the best (because it is), show your support and head over to Patreon and subscribe at the 9ES Deluxe tier to listen to this and all past episodes of Garbage Time!
